New Teletechnology Offers Real-Time Guidance for Veterinary Teams

We usually think of telehealth as digitally connecting pet owners with veterinarians. But a new technology strives to make a digital educational connection between veterinary health care professionals.

Telehealth is an increasingly important topic in veterinary medicine. And while it is most commonly thought of as a link between veterinary professionals and their clients, that notion may be broadening.

Hodei Technology, a developer of mobile, real-time remote telepresence communication solutions, believes that telemedicine should also educate, enable and empower the entire veterinary team.

Enter Aliquis Telepresence — a newly formed division of Hodei Technology focused exclusively on bringing a new teletechnology communications platform to the veterinary industry. Aliquis Telepresence promises to enhance veterinary patient care by offering live, on-demand connectivity in virtually any setting.

The company’s HCview GEMINI, currently available in the human medical market, features first-person point-of-view technology — made possible by its proprietary and patented Google Glass technology — that can link remote specialists with the front end of care.

“As a Glass partner, we have been fortunate to be aligned with Google in finding ways to address veterinary and human health care,” Hodei Technology CEO Guy Mascaro said. “The Aliquis Telepresence division offers us an opportunity to take this technology and open doors exclusively to veterinary hospitals, businesses, universities and others, and help demonstrate the impact that our telepresence platform can provide.”

Aliquis Telepresence President Brian Huber, DVM, ABVP, said this HIPAA-compliant, real-time two-way audiovisual collaboration tool can be used to bridge the educational gap between general veterinary practitioners and specialists.

“Telepresence provides us with an opportunity to revolutionize veterinary care by bringing the expertise of a specialist directly to the level it’s needed — at the clinic or hospital,” Dr. Huber said. “Using telepresence engages the general practitioner, the specialist and the pet parent in the therapeutic pathway — ensuring earlier intervention, better treatment options and better clinical results.”

“We see tremendous potential for telepresence in the veterinary space,” Mascaro said.
